Agenesis of the posterolateral bundle of anterior cruciate ligament.
Summary of "Agenesis of the posterolateral bundle of anterior cruciate ligament."
The objective of this article is to report an anterior cruciate ligament variation that has not been previously described, in which the posterolateral bundle of anterior cruciate ligament is congenitally not developed. The clinical picture and the magnetic resonance images are presented, and the arthroscopic appearance is described.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Anterior Cruciate Ligament
A strong ligament of the knee that originates from the posteromedial portion of the lateral condyle of the femur, passes anteriorly and inferiorly between the condyles, and attaches to the depression in front of the intercondylar eminence of the tibia.
Posterior Cruciate Ligament
A strong ligament of the knee that originates from the anterolateral surface of the medial condyle of the femur, passes posteriorly and inferiorly between the condyles, and attaches to the posterior intercondylar area of the tibia.
Lateral Ligament, Ankle
There are two lateral ligaments of the ankle - internal and external. The internal lateral ligament is attached to the apex and anterior and posterior bodies of the inner malleolus and inserted into the navicular bone, the inferior calcaneo-navicular ligament, the sustentaculum tali of the os calcis, and the inner side of the astragalus. The external lateral ligament, also called the lateral collateral ligament, consists of three distinct fasciculi - the calcaneofibular, the anterior talofibular, and the posterior talofibular.
Measurements of joint flexibility (RANGE OF MOTION, ARTICULAR), usually by employing an angle-measuring device (arthrometer). Arthrometry is used to measure ligamentous laxity and stability. It is often used to evaluate the outcome of ANTERIOR CRUCIATE LIGAMENT replacement surgery.
Bone-patellar Tendon-bone Graft
Fixation of the ANTERIOR CRUCIATE LIGAMENT, during surgical reconstruction, by the use of a bone- patellar tendon autograft.
BACKGROUND: Current trends in anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR) have been toward anatomical reconstruction that restores the normal size and location of the anterior cruciate ligament i...
INTRODUCTION: Magnetic resonance imaging on 3 Tesla (3T MRI) with arthroscopic correlation has proven to adequately identify the anteromedial bundle (AMB) and posterolateral bund...
We present a review of the literature looking at the anatomy of the Anterior Cruciate Ligament, the biomechanical aspects of ACL reconstruction, review the outcomes of single and double bundle ACL rec...
The purpose of this study was to objectively evaluate whether double-bundle anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction can better restore the normal translational and rotational laxities than the...
The biomechanical function of the anteromedial (AM) and posterolateral (PL) bundles of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) remains controversial. Some studies report that the AM bundle stabilises the...
The purpose of this randomized clinical trial is to determine the difference in quality of life outcome at two years, in patients undergoing an Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) reconstruct...
The objective of this prospective study is to assess the clinical, functional and radiological outcomes of three different ACL reconstruction procedures: Bone Patella Bone graft, Single bu...
The purpose of the study is to determine if there is difference in immediate postoperative pain levels (48 hours) between patients who wear a knee immobilizer splint compared to patients w...
Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction is surgery that is done to repair a damaged ligament in the knee. In this study we will look at whether the femoral nerve block, a commonly...
Patients suffering from a rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) with instability of the knee joint are treated with an operative ACL-reconstruction: one group of patients with a...
